your one is much smaller
They've hotlinked directly to my blog so i'm going to change it to something really offensive tonight. In the meantime retweets and suggestions for what to change it to are welcome x
something they won't notice? hide a dick in there or something. it's juvenile, but it gets the point across
didn't know that.
also at least by linking to your blog they're acknowledging you made it?
and they're not really acknowledging that I made it. I don't know who the fuck they are anyway, I don't know if I want my work to be associated with them
which is something that I never do but will be doing more regularly from now on and saw that they'd linked to it
coming from a thread (on popular music website Drowned in Sound) requesting people go round and exact violent retribution on them.
I don't mean to be patronizing (I'm failing) but you might want to read up on copyright on the UKIPO website to make sure you don't get into trouble later on. It's much less hassle to avoid any potential issues than inadvertently infringe something and sort it out later.
I just meant it's an area that can potentially get you into trouble and it's best to know what you legally can and can't do.
That's where the real money is.
no need to be embarrassed about it
THIS ISN'T LEGALLY ACTIONABLE ADVICE.
That's straight up copyright infringement, whether they credit you or not. You might want to point this out to them. I can give you statute numbers to write if you want to shit them up a bit/get them to remove it.
Or upload a picture of your balls with the same URL. Also a good option.
I'm probably going to go with cat_race's face and some writing saying that they are infringing my copyright. Maybe cat_race's balls, idk. There will be a message to the effect that they are thieving bastards so why would you want to work with them though. Although no matter how many times I read their What We Do page, I can't figure out what they actually do
I'll add them to the doctored image I replace it with
apparently I had you blocked on twitter? i don't know why, sorry. i unblocked you now.
I don't know why either
fuck them up vine
I'll try really hard, though I might just end up apologising and defusing the very situation I aim to create before I even punch them or anything.
maybe s_a_d should do it.
You could stand behind him and grit yr teeth a bit or frown or something though, idk
but my mind is gentle, like Andrex toilet tissue.
if I put my body there and pretend a bit, it could work.
Maybe go and have a polite word? Or cut the MD's face?
that would be great, ta
I keep clicking on that link in the hope of cat_race's balls flashing up.

unauthorized use with a credit is still unauthorized use.
I've told him he should really know basic copyright law considering what it is (I think) they do. Fucking chump
If someone used their software without permission I'm pretty sure they'd be pissed off too
He just seemed nice, and compliant with your requests, and you were a bit rude and blunt with him.
Great drawing, though.
but I don't think I was rude, just told him he should bone up on copyright law. I said please and thank you :)
maybe he got confused and thought he was you
so maybe he drew it himself?
I was just curious to see if anything had been learned or if it bad been replaced by another unauthorized image which didn't have internet superstar andyvine's fan base to defend its honour.
Thanks everyone x
Love the picture!
Its a lot better then the last one – I hope this artist doesn’t start crying like a little girl and go running to all his internet friends about you using it.
but I think you're kind of missing the point, keyboard warrior
I thought you were saying that. That's pretty funny, I'll give him that
